“When I stand before God at the end of this life I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.” – Erma Bombeck

I was born and raised in the coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina, spent five years in the sailing capitol of the world — Annapolis, MD. Since then, I’ve traveled all over the United States documenting love stories for couples and families. I now live in beautiful downtown Charleston with my husband Daniel, and our rainbow baby River George.   

I believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. I believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

When I was just thirteen, I was given my first point and shoot camera by family friends and I spent hours photographing every object I came across. I truly loved it!

It makes sense that my love of photography started with family and friends. What was once a hobby quickly became a passion and ultimately a career. Ten years of professional photography have allowed me to photograph and serve countless couples, families and friends all over the world.

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of the people in the images and the world around them.

“Where do I begin with how amazing Hannah is …. for any bride out there that is looking for a photographer that will make you feel like you’re best friends, have your back and do everything in her power to make your special day shine bright in your wedding pictures, Hannah is your girl. From day one when my now husband and I met Hannah she was sweet, humble, comforting and organized. She made the decision to put our trust in her to be our engagement and wedding photographer super super easy. The day of our wedding had some iffy weather (rain on and off) but Hannah literally made our pictures appear as if it was the most gorgeous day. I’ve heard overcast lighting is best for pictures but I truly believe Hannah behind the lens was the magic our day needed. The moments she captures amidst the poses, looks and “cheesy” walking photos are unbelievable. She has an eye for photography and beauty. I wish I had another huge life event to trust Hannah to take my photo for because I’d choose HannahLane Photography again in a heartbeat. Thank you Hannah for everything! We love you <3″

“Hannah is one of the nicest and most caring people you’ll ever meet. From our initial conversations with her on the phone, through the final picture she took on our wedding day, she was an absolute a delight to work with. She takes genuine interest in getting to know the couple, their story, and telling that story through pictures. We hired Hannah for our engagement shoot first, and we were so impressed at her ability to capture the right lighting, coach us on flattering poses, and center us in beautiful settings and scenery. Hannah didn’t disappoint again on our wedding day. Her experience and professionalism were self-evident, as she efficiently captured numerous permutations for our large family and bridal party, finding beautiful backdrops throughout our venue.  She has a true talent. If you’re going to spend money on your wedding, this is the place to do it. Hannah will capture priceless memories of your special day that you will want to relive again and again, and show all over your house. We couldn’t be happier with our photos; we will cherish them forever. Thank you so much, Hannah!”

“I find it so hard to put into words what a WONDERFUL photographer Hannah is. From our very first meeting with her, we knew that she was all you could ask for and more in a photographer. She captured every part of our wedding day with elegance and we truly cherish the gift of all of those memories. Hannah went above and beyond what we could have ever expected, including hand sewing my veil back together after a mishap ten minutes before the ceremony started! We will definitely be using Hannah to capture future occasions!”

the process

I aim that every photo evokes powerful emotion and every photo tells its part of your unique love story. The collections are designed to suit every couple’s budget and the additional ‘add ons’ are a perfect accompaniment to tailor make your wedding day coverage. 

One of my favorite parts of the photography collections are the engagement sessions. I adore engagement sessions for the simple euphoria that couples are experiencing in the post proposal glow. It makes couples grin from ear to ear and makes my job so easy. It also gives me the opportunity to get toknow you both better in a relaxed and fun environment. So when the wedding day comes you will have full confidence in me that you will love every image. Most of my collections include a complimentary engagement session.

Do you travel for weddings?
Absolutely! I love to travel. My main locations are Annapolis, Maryland - Charleston, South Carolina - and Colorado Springs, Colorado. All weddings in these cities I do not charge any travel fees. I’ve photographed weddings and sessions all over the US and Caribbean. Let me know where your destination wedding is located and I will be able to give you associated travel fees.
How many photos will I receive?
Every client and wedding is different so the number of images you receive varies. However on average wedding galleries are between 300 - 600 images and engagement galleries are between 70 - 200 images. You will receive your photos in approximately 4 weeks after your wedding date and one week after your engagement session.
What if it rains on my wedding day?
I am always keeping an eye on the weather leading up to your wedding. I work with you to prepare before hand in case of inclement weather. Above all I want to ensure you that everything will still be gorgeous. I am experienced in photographing weddings in all kinds of weather situations. I even photographed a wedding in a hurricane once
How would you describe your shooting style?
My style is a fine art photojournalist style. Very candid and relaxed. I am an observer most of the time with very limited intrusion. However, I do guide and help give direction during the portrait sessions. My goal with these is to create timeless warm images filled with emotion and beauty.
